I had The Sidewalk Crusaders perform at my wedding ceremony in North York, and then after at the reception. They are phenomenal, real professionals!! Peter Cavanagh, who worked with me, was so easy to work with, and was always available to discuss my ever changing requests. My friends and family raved about the awesome dance music they played. We are very happy we had them perform for us!
